Camella Sto Tomas - LOCATION
Camella Sto Tomas is located at Brgy. San Miguel, Sto. Tomas, Batangas.
Yes, the Camella Sto. Tomas gives its residents a striking view of the natural beauty of Mt. Makiling but it also provides other benefits. Being located near the main highway sure does come with a lot of perks, not the least of which is being highly accessible to modern facilities.
If you do not have your own vehicle, you can still easily get around town because there are plenty of public utility vehicles plying their routes through the main highway. There are many tricycles, jeeps, and even buses that can take you anywhere you want to go at any time you want. Also, if you ever need to travel to Metro Manila, you can take a short tricycle ride to the Turbina Transport Terminal and catch any one of the dozen or so buses headed to Manila, Quezon City, and other cities in the Metro. The total travel time from Sto. Tomas to Manila is just around an hour or so depending on the traffic situation.
If you are thinking that you cannot possibly live in Sto. Tomas Batangas because there are no shopping malls nearby, then you probably haven’t visited the place lately. The town has been experiencing quite a bit of an economic growth spurt in the past couple of years and with that growth also came the commercial complexes. There is quite a lot of small to medium sized shopping centers that are just minutes away from Camella Sto. Tomas but if you are looking for something more substantial, then thirty to forty minutes away you will find SM City Lipa. In the opposite direction, you will also find SM City Calamba, both large shopping malls that will no doubt calm your raging shopaholic tendencies.
Now, if you are only looking for a place where you can buy fresh produce and meats for your family, you do not have to travel far because just five to ten minutes from the main gate of Camella Sto. Tomas is the Sto. Tomas Public Market. Here, you will find tons of fresh vegetables, poultry, and meats. You do not have to make do with frozen foods again when you can buy the fresh stuff for much cheaper.
If you still have school-aged children, then there are dozens of public and private elementary and high schools within a 2-kilometer radius around Camella Sto. Tomas. If your kids are already in college, you can transfer them to the nearby La Consolacion College or the Polytechnic University of the Philippines Sto. Tomas campus. There are even more choices in schools in the nearby towns and neighboring province of Laguna if your kid is willing to travel around thirty minutes or so to get to school.
Hospitals are also not in low supply in Sto. Tomas. In fact, there are two that are just minutes away from Camella Sto. Tomas - the St. Cabrini Medical Center in the downtown area and the Sto. Tomas Hospital just fifteen minutes away from the junction. These hospitals are staffed by highly professional physicians so you can rest assured that you are always in good hands.
